previous page/ Sam Holt engages with the imaginative and the enigmatic. His painting style and approach is visceral and spontaneous, distinguished by lyrical riffs of colour and linear flights of fancy. Sam works intuitively and speaks of “acting on thoughts or dreams and ideas in the now … of being present and open to possibilities — both present and in the future”. This translates as a painting style that is volatile, dynamic, spontaneous and speculative. He works alla prima (at first attempt), directly onto canvas with paint applied in a single sweeping line without prior sketching. His paintings are built on with multiple campaigns, as the artist revisits his works in response to ideas and impulses to apply richly coloured impasto oil paint in his characteristic calligraphic gestures onto expanses of raw, coarse-weave linen.
